Temptation Island has truly mastered the art of crafting a good cliffhanger. Every week a bombshell is dropped and we are left hanging at the end of each episode. And last week was no exception. I needed a bonfire to find some closure after that hot mess!
Last we saw, it looked like a threesome was in the works with David Benavidez, Payton Burgess and Samantha Hoffman. Payton threw herself at David to make Casey Starchak jealous, and Samantha threw herself at him to steer him away from Toneata Morgan and Kari Nesheim. I really hope these women end up realizing that David is no prize to fight over.
On last night’s Real Housewives Of Dallas LeeAnne Locken tied the knot to Rich Emberlin and treated her wedding ceremony like the sideshow act at a carnival. She then treated her wedding guests like they needed to pay for their own corndogs.
LeeAnne also insulted her own mother from the altar, because what better opportunity to say your piece to your mother when she can’t interrupt than during your own wedding vows?!
LeeAnne’s mother, Margaret, did in fact make it to the wedding. Right on time, in fact, and wearing a gold sequined dress. LeeAnne then proceeded to spend the entire ceremony and reception ignoring her. Margaret even had to beg for a photograph with her own daughter!
Brace yourselves! The Real Housewives of New Jersey are BACK! Teresa Giudice, Melissa Gorga, Dolores Catania, Margaret Josephs, Jackie Goldschneider, and Jennifer Aydin are ready to stir up more drama. Don’t worry, Jersey’s favorite villain Danielle Staub is back too. The Jersey ladies had a banner season last year, so this is likely to be the most explosive yet.
A lot of drama is rumored to surround the marriage between Teresa and Joe Giudice. What a crazy ride it’s been between those two! It’ll also be interesting to see what happens next between Danielle and Margaret. How do you move on after you push someone’s husband in a pool? Jackie and Jennifer were great additions last year, so hopefully, they bring it this season yet again.
With tonight’s episode in the books, Survivor: Island of the Idols has reached the merge…and by nearly all measures, this has been one heck of a pre-merge season. This last pre-merge episode in particular was a pretty entertaining one to watch, culminating not only in a surprising Tribal Council, but a thoughtful and meaningful one that encapsulates everything that has made this show relevant going into its 20th year on the air.
Like a worm on Jack‘s head, we’re going to slowly slither into this one, because there’s a whole heck of a lot to get to…so get comfy.
As I do at the beginning of every recap, please heed the following: Remember that this recap assumes that you have already seen this week’s episode of Survivor: Island of the Idols. If you have not and don’t want to be spoiled, please come back later! It’s important to add that while we WILL hit on all of the important developments of the episode, this is not a linear “blow-by-blow” recap. It is more of a discussion and reaction of what we just witnessed together.

Ahhhh… Bravo is starting the holiday season off early with the gift of Tamra Judge‘s web of deceit, dishonestly, and backstabbing being unraveled! I probably shouldn’t get too excited though because knowing how Real Housewives Of Orange County rolls, Tamra will somehow find a way to get out of this. Snakes can fit through the smallest crevices, after all!
It all starts with Tamra and Shannon Beador heading to dinner with Kelly Dodd. Their plan is to confront Kelly for her comment that the only time she’ll celebrate Vicki Gunvalson is at Vicki’s funeral. Shannon is devastated that Kelly is so callous and diabolical with her words (as if she didn’t have a phony funeral for her marriage a couple seasons back!), but suddenly Tamra – who started all this drama – plays devil’s advocate (cause she’s the devil!) that Kelly has a right to be angry given all the horrible things Vicki has said about her like that train rumor (which Tamra shared with the group many times over)! And most recently when Vicki reveled how Kelly tried to throw her mama from the train. Or was it stairs? Deetails-Schmeetails!
In beautiful sunny Thailand there is no paradise aboard Valor as the crew of Below Deck fractures at the seams under the misguidance of Ashton Pienaar.
To be fair I don’t know if it’s Ashton being in over his head from a leadership perspective, or like many a bosun before him, culled by the crazy of a green deckhand. Or a redhead. In this case the double-whammy!
Abbi Murphy has essentially decided that leadership and pecking order be damned – she does what she wants! Like getting so wasted she spends the morning vomiting and misses her clock-in time on deck. Abbi thinks working on Valor, for Captain Lee Rosbach, is like being the tortilla chip flipper at Chipotle. You know – it’s totes fine to text your boss half an hour before your shift starts to let them know that you were like partying soooo hard the night before that your mascara is still smeared all over your morning after dress and mixing with tears from vomiting for 2 hours straight. Hotttt!
It’s that time of year again: 90 Day Fiance is back!!! This time we have new couples determined to make their love last. This season promises to follow seven new couples who have age gaps, communication issues, and a whole lot of drama. Now that they are engaged each pair must marry within 90 days of arriving in the U.S. or face leaving the country.
You may notice some familiar faces this season. Angela Deem, and Michael Ilesanmi are back. These two are well known for their crazy antics, especially Angela. I am looking forward to seeing how Michael fares in the U.S. Michael, the offer still remains, blink twice into the camera if you need help!
Last night’s episode of Married to Medicine was a lot lighter than previous episodes that were more drama-heavy. We witnessed one cast member face her health demons. This episode contained more support from the ladies than I have seen in quite some time.
Quad Webb-Lunceford allows Heavenly Kimes to set her up on a blind date. Jackie Walters renovates a new office. Contessa Metcalfe throws a carnival-themed birthday for her kids. Buffie Purselle comes to Simone Whitmore for support when she discovers a lump in her breast. Let’s get straight into the recap!
